  1. At ABRP, we work a little bit like a certain EV manufacturer - we release new features and upgrade any time, without much announcement. (Sometimes we break things, too.) However, sometimes it is good to make an announcement of all the things which have happened so that nobody misses the new goodies. Therefore; ABRP 3.7! Next Charger: Press this nifty little button, and you will be given up to five alternatives for your next charger, including how much time each choice will add to your trip. Perfect if you feel like skipping a certain charger, or if conditions change. Or you really need to go to the bathroom. New telemetry/OBD framework: We have updated our way of collecting real-time data for supported car models (which are not always-connected and have an open API like the Teslas). If you want to have real-time car SoC % in ABRP, click Settings->More Settings->Setup to get a guide on how to do. Updated maps: We have updated the maps and changed maps provider. We think they look even better, but let us know if there is anything we can do to further improve. We can definitively change the way they look. New car models: All the new 2019 Teslas are in, including the longerrrr range Model S and X. But also Audi E-tron Sportback, Volkswagen I.D. and many more. and also don't miss that ABRP plans more than 3 times faster than before in release ABRP 3.6!
  2. Allright, I am sure we can solve that as soon as I get 2019.12 myself. Does other sites using positiong work (like TeslaWaze)?
  3. Excellent! Fixed right away, and left me with "why on earth did we ever have that in the code?"
  4. Thanks for the detailed report - should be fixed now!

    Waypoint SOC arrive

    Sorry it took so long, but now that is fixed. Thanks for the report! 🙂
  6. Progressive Web Apps (i.e. storing web pages offline) seems a bit immature on Safari, but we will do what we can to make it work as good as possible. I got the same issue on my phone, but resolved it by going to iOS Settings->Safari->Clear History and Website data. Let us see if it works from now or if it was just a temporary fix.
  7. Thanks for the detailed bug report - it turned out to be a silly mistake by us. Now fixed!
  8. Thanks! The issue was that the new generation planner tried to avoid chargers which were too close - and we forgot the case where the chargers are waypoints 🙂 Now fix.ed.
  9. Sorry for not responding earlier, and great thanks for the specific bug reports! The issue was that the new generation planner avoids chargers which are too close to each other, and we forgot to exclude the case where the chargers were waypoints 🙂 Now fixed.
  10. I don't know if that worked or not, but I will assume that it was at least one component which needed fixing. Now the normal version of ABRP automatically does this for the Tesla Chromium browser. For the technically interested, the User Agent reported from the browser is Mozilla/5.0 (X11; GNU/Linux) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chromium/72.0.3626.122 Chrome/72.0.3626.122 Safari/537.36 Tesla QtCarBrowser
  11. Cool! I have not received this update yet so I cannot debug myself - thanks for helping out! Try https://beta.abetterrouteplanner.com now. It should have resolved that problem - let me know!
  12. New feature - next charger alternatives We just released a new (beta) feature which allows you to see what your next charger alternatives are while driving. ABRP plans are most focused on getting you to your destination as fast as possible, but there are of course other factors which matter in the real world. Pressing "Next Charger Alts" on top of the plan list will give you a pop-up dialog with your top-5 charger alternatives from where you are right now, including how much longer it would take to go for that charger compared to the (time-wise) optimal one. Let us know what you think!
  13. To verify and improve our models we need your feedback. There's many ways we could use help if you actually own one: Drive a plan and compare it to the actual battery used. Drive a plan with the browser active, and update your actual battery percentage in the browser. Contribute data via Tesla API. The best way to improve the data is to provide data directly from the car. For Teslas, we can get data via Tesla's unofficial API. To contribute your data, you can simply log in with your Tesla account on ABRP: Settings ▶ More Settings ▶ My Tesla Login Enter your credentials or Token (We do not store your login credentials on our servers, so you may have to refresh this login in your browser periodically). Select "Share data with ABRP" (This allows us to gather live telemetry while you're driving with the website active in the browser) Select "24h Background Sharing" (This allows us to poll in the background while you're driving, if you don't want to have the browser up in your car) Thanks for providing feedback!
  14. The maps we use for routing in ABRP are still semi-static, updated weekly. We could update more frequently, or we could go to dynamic data including temporary closures and even traffic. However, we are not there yet.
  15. We do not store tokens on your account or any server (except temporarily in RAM if you enable background sharing) for security reasons. The token is only stored in your browser. By clicking "Log out" from the MyTesla menu in ABRP, your token gets deleted.
  16. Sorry, the Tesla-browser-double-click-bug-workaround was not enabled for that particular button. Now it should work!
  17. Thank you, this has now been corrected.
  18. Fixed! https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=87933d0f-af10-4380-98b4-a10b624f9bbf
  19. Seems like this is due to OSRM (the waypoint-to-waypoint routing machine we use) not handling access:conditional tags from OSM. There is a ticket for it but seems like no progress so far: https://github.com/Project-OSRM/osrm-backend/issues/4231 Let use see if we can fix it through an OSRM profile.
  20. Turns out that the avoided road segments are marked with a "proposed" tag in OSM. I am now re-cooking the Europe map while ignoring "proposed" tags, let us see how that works! Edit: The OSM comment on the eastbound tunnel indicates that it was under construction in 2015. Is it finished now or is the road still using a single tunnel?
  21. ABRP 3.5.2 - Better Driving Mode and Offline Web App - And Faster Planning Today we have released ABRP 3.5.2 with major planning speed improvements, especially for new not-recently-searched routes. Even the rather slow (in many aspects) Renault Zoe plans reasonably fast for shorter routes. ABRP 3.5.1 came with a lot of improvements, as usual. Major focus of this release is to improve the experience in driving mode and offline/limited connectivity support The mission of A Better Routeplanner is about meeting two needs Planning, preparing, estimating the time, and generally dreaming of future trips, at home or on the road in your favorite browser Driving and getting feedback on how it goes, how your compare to the plan, ensuring that you will safely make it to the next charger - or replan if needed The ABRP driving mode addresses the second point above by providing real-time status based on your position compared to the plan, with optional car real-time car status based on optional MyTesla login (for Tesla owners) or OBD data (for some EVs). Web App with Offline Support ABRP is now supporting Chrome's and Safari's ability to allow a web app to work offline (a.k.a "PWA" - progressive web app). This means that ABRP will continue to display your latest plan and map even offline and even if you do not use it for a while. In Android and Chrome, you will be asked to "Add ABRP to the home screen", which means it will appear like any app in your app drawer. The same thing can be done by adding it to your home screen in Safari. This also means that ABRP works in full screen! The offline support does not include planning new routes, though, as this requires help from our servers! Let us know if there is more offline functionality you would like to have. Map-less Mode In ABRP 3.5 we introduce map-less full screen mode for those of us who know the way anyway, or use a second navigation system such as Waze in parallel to ABRP. The map-less driving mode is also lighter on the browser, which makes it more enjoyable in e.g. the Tesla browser. You can switch back and forth between the normal map mode and map-less any time you want by clicking the map icon: You can also click the "frame" button on top of the driving display while driving: Have fun planning and driving! Give us your feedback on the ABRP forums or on Twitter @Routebetter!
  22. It took far too long, but now we have the 120 Ah models in ABRP too.
